There are virtually no large-scale IT projects that come off without a hitch - and private cloud computing is unlikely to be the first. This session will examine challenges encountered during private cloud computing initiatives and their solutions. These challenges will be presented in rapid-fire discussion of what works and what doesn't, including the perspectives of those who've lived it. The panel will further explore these barriers by challenging each other's positions, offering practical insights reflecting how organizations have addressed their implementation issues to successfully (or unsuccessfully) launch a private cloud.
